Oatmeal Dried Fruit Cookies

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars
10

"These are the best oatmeal cookies I've ever had! Very buttery and very hearty. Any dried fruit works well such as cherries, raisins, cranberries, blueberries, or chopped apricots. For a really decadent treat, use chocolate chips and nuts instead of fruit."
